Directions

  1. Place hot dogs into a large pot of simmering water and keep hot.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Whisk flour, corn meal, buttermilk, eggs, sugar, bacon drippings, salt, baking powder, and garlic powder in a large bowl until moistened; beat batter until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove a hot dog from the water and blot completely dry with paper towels; skewer the hot dog lengthwise with a bamboo skewer. Using the skewer end as a handle, roll the hot dog in the batter to thoroughly coat.
  5. Roll the corn dog in the hot oil with the same continuous rolling motion, setting the batter; continue to roll the corn dog in the hot oil until deep golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Alternately, lay corn dog into hot oil after initial rolling to finish cooking the batter, about 1 minute per side. Drain corn dogs on paper towels to blot excess oil.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I usually buy the 3-pound package of bun length hot dogs and make at least a double batch of batter at a time. Leftover batter can be kept in fridge in airtight container for a few days. Heat oil, stir batter, and begin!
  • If your corn dogs get done in under a minute, your oil is to hot, lower temperature. If batter slides off hot dog when you put it in the hot oil, batter is too thin or hot dog isn't dried thoroughly.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the breading ingredients. The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary. We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

The kids enjoyed these - thanks for the tips of rolling the corn dogs to set the batter. I had really long dogs, so I cut them in half and that worked much better fitting them in the pan. Thanks.

These are good, it does have a thicker dough that adheres to the hot dogs. We liked the flavor also. Thanks for sharing!

This was so much fun! I didn't have bacon drippings & I think I'll leave out the garlic next time. (Not for kids) I will warn you, this makes a lot! I should have halved it. I used leftover batter to fry up some squash slices...with a little syrup, they tasted just like corn fritters!

This would be good with ketchup.
